Hannukah: The Festival of Lights Explained
Hanukkah, also known as the Jewish Festival of Lights, is a holiday that celebrates the victory of the Jewish people over their oppressors in ancient times. The happy holiday greeting “Hanukkah Sameach,” meaning “Happy Hanukkah,” is commonly exchanged among friends and family during this time.
During Hanukkah, a menorah with nine candle holders is lit each night for eight nights, with one candle lit on the first night, two on the second, and so on. In addition to lighting Hanukkah candles and giving gifts, traditional foods such as latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) are eaten.
With its rich traditions and symbolism, Hanukkah offers a chance for reflection and celebration for those who observe it. The holiday also emphasizes spending time with loved ones, reflecting on the triumphs and struggles of the past year, and ridding yourself of all your worries.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, often falls within or near Hannukah, making it a particularly joyous time in the Jewish community.
